I’ve been attending the Discovery Education National Science Institute in Silver Spring, MD for the past three days. This was their first Science Institute and it was attended by approximately 30 educators from around the country. I feel privileged to have been invited to participate.
I don’t have time to write much now but I’m including a link to a Share Tabs URL. Share Tabs (http://sharetabs.com/) is a Web site that allows you to create a new URL with a list of up to 15 URLs. This is an easy way to share a safe list of Web sites with your students or colleagues. When they click on the Share Tabs URL that you create and go to that Web site, they will get a Preview page that shows icons for each of the URLs you’ve included in your list. It will also give them virtual tabs to each of those Web sites. Share Tabs is free and you don’t even need to create a login. Great resource for teachers!
I’ve just created a Share Tab URL to a number of Web-based resources that we explored during our time at the Discovery Education Science Institute. They range from Web 2.0 tools like Blabberize, Glogster and Animoto to links to some of the wonderful resources that Discovery Education shares with teachers to a couple of terrific You Tube videos.
